Well, it has been a long time since communicated last on my blog.  As with all things, circumstances happen that prevent the routine to continue for a while.  But I am back and am starting to paint more again.  I can't say the paintings are as grrrreat as before but I'm back and happy.  Today it is 8 degrees below zero here in Minneapolis and it is a good day to paint.  I have signed up to enter a few shows this year.  I will let you know it I get in and what is happening.  All is well and I hope all is well with you.
